Spare Time II
We are a non-profit child care organization that offers quality affordable before and after school care for children attending Sir Wilfrid Laurier School. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun environment that encourages and challenges children to try new things.
Each day, children at Spare Time II may choose from a selection of programs and activities. In addition to the daily program schedule, we have homework club, arts & craft projects, organized cooperative games and sports, free play and educational workshops. We also have designated areas for a library, video games/computers and more.
On all field trips, children are well supervised and ride in our Variety Club vans and buses driven by qualified, licensed class 4 drivers.
The monthly fee includes all program activities and field trips, as well as nutritious lunches and snacks.
All of our programs are individually planned and organized tailored for the children in our care:
|Juniors Program: Grades K-3||Our centre provides many age appropriate outlets for play and fun specifically geared for Grades K-3.|
|Leaders Program: Grades 4-7||Spare Time II takes pride in our Leaders’ Club Programs developed for Grades 4-7. These programs focus on skill learning, knowledge building, personal responsibility and increased independence.|
|Morning Program: Grades K-7||Early birds who attend Spare Time II can play games and do puzzles, arts & crafts or homework. Breakfast is available from 7:30-8:30 am for a nominal fee.|
|Holidays||During holiday breaks, Pro D days and district closures our centre is open Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with lunch and snacks provided.|

Tennis, basketball, baseball, organized co-operative games and challenges are some of the activities we do for fun, teamwork and skill development. With direct access to our beautiful playground and tennis courts, we also play there regularly during free time.
